Let look at the ingredients, I can’t list down the 50+ ingredients provided by it does include seafood, vegetable, meat and fish ball. Ingredients is fresh and one thing I do appreciate is they keep refilling and no empty trap.
According to the owner, certain sauce they do it themselves and I highly appreciate for their delicious sauce which is very tasty for grilling such as clam and squid.
Remember to look for this sambal sauce, it is so tasty and strong in flavor. It not really spicy but has good flavor to grill the squid or clam.
Let us show you how we cook the clam, when the clam open up, put more sauce in it and immediately can be eat so that it not overcook.
Boiling and Grilling together
After long hour of cooking, the aluminum foil become black and burn, you can always request the owner to replace a new one for you and they are very generous to do that.
On our visit they serve this super huge jungle banana, it not easy to get even in market. The size is very big and the texture is different compare to normal banana.
This is our dessert, jelly. It taste just normal.
For just RM18.80 it really worth a try, their sauce is really special and tasty. The owner as well very friendly and keep asking us whether want to take photo for us or not, so lovely.
